  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I request a $40.00 "call-out" fee to cover fuel regardless of recovery status. Due to the never ending variables in these sort of searches, I will allow you to choose a "reward" based on efforts and value. Basically, offer what you deem fair and what you can afford.

Search Types

I have a multitude of detector options and would be glad to search any parks, beaches, yards, and water for your valuables.

Search Locations

Contra Costa and Alameda County and I'd be glad to travel within the greater Bay Area.

Brendon Chapman's Bio

I got my first taste of metal detecting as a member of a Volunteer Bay Area Search and Rescue Team. There, we systematically searched crime scenes for evidence such as bullet casings and slugs, knives, guns, and other objects of interest.

It was not until recently that my passion for history and lost treasures turned into a hobby often involving metal detecting. I love to find old coins and relics and research there history.

I will make every effort to locate your lost valuables. Please call early, the longer an item is missing the less likely it is to be recovered for the owner. Also, I would love to include you in our efforts. I find that it helps you take your mind off of a stressful situation and adds additional resources to the search. Please ask how you can assist in your search.
